Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Draft at the brewpub in Vienna. Pours a dark and hazy burnt orange amber color with a thick, frothy head of off-white foam. Steadfast, the head never fully settles, and it leaves dense swaths of patchy lacing on the glass. The nose is very hoppy, showing notes of orange, grapefruit rind, and pine over a less prominen base of caramel, toffee, and baked bread crust. Flavors largely follow suit, Falling on the hoppy, bitter side of balanced, loaded with bitter, leafy citrus and pine hops, resin clinging to the tongue. Still, it is suitably countered with bready, caramelized malts. Yeast is dry and slightly crackery. The palate is substantive yet drinkable, with balanced carbonation and a relatively crisp, drying finish. Good brew. Very similar to the original. A prototypical east coast IPA.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Hopfig-würziger Antrunk. Sehr malzig, fast auf gleicher Ebene mit der Hopfigkeit. Stärker werdend, natürlich und kräftig. Im Mittelteil erneut recht malzig, der Hopfen ist hier klar im Vordergrund, denoch ist das Malz fast ebenbürtig, nicht unbedingt IPA typisch. Mild ausklingender Hopfenton. Test vom 10.8.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 14,12,11,10,-,11

Frothmeister (524) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2011
On tap at brewpub. A cloudy amber with a good sized frothy white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus (especially grapefruit), pine, and faint yeast. Big opening from the hops, followed by some faint malt peeking through, with lots of bitter grapefruit in the finish. Solid stuff.

gunnar (4867) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2010
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours hazy golden with a big white head. Strong fruity hoppy aroma, citrus, pine and pineapple.Taste is supported by a nice medium sweet malty body, but those nice hops are the stars of this show. Smooth mouthfeel, resins and citrus, just lovely and refreshing. Dry hoppy aftertaste lasts to the end. Beer heaven!

Nickls (1765) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Poured with a two-finger thick slightly egg shell colored head...pretty frothy and left chunky lacing throughout the sample. Some bready/sweet maltiness followed by very prominant citric and cedary hop aromas. Powerfully bitter, but balance well. Great hop bitterness comes over the palate first and it is a bit earthy, citruisy, and piney at different points. Very nice complexity for the style. Good malt balance, but doesn’t come close to rivaling the hops. Medium MF, muted carbonation and more than coats the palate. Pretty high drinkability, nice flavors along with the high hop factor. A little less aggressive than it’s US namesake. Overall, pretty fantastic brew and slightly more complex that Victory’s Hopdevil, though less assertive.

armando629 (2382) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2010
Draught at the brewpub.
Hazy amber appearance with a superb, stable off-white head. Looks like a statue for the beerfoam...Citrussy, grapefruit hop aroma leads the character in the nose with a fine caramel background. Smooth mouthfeel with malt and caramel, honey, cinnamon and vanilla. And of course the powerful but well balanced hoppy flavor with a resiny-citrussy character. Dry, hoppy.fruity aftertaste with grapes and citrusses. Nice!
